Dear Members,

Since the Beolab 19 woofer is available in rose gold, I'm interested to buy a pay of rose gold Beolab 18 with Beolab 19. I’m still a bit unsure if this will be the right decision or if I get bored about the color after a few months… please share your thoughts.

I searched in the forum and most people are fascinated from the Beoplay A9. Does anyone here has another product from the Love Affair Collection at home? Then please share your pictures.

Have a great day - Carlo

@Duels: as the white Beolab 19 was currently sold out at my dealer he lend me a silver one (which is not matching my interior). The white Beolab 19 will arrive around 21th August. Picture will follow. Here a picture from the other Beolab 18 next to the Eames LTR....

Very nice table Carlito. I can see why you went for the White BL19. It will look absolutely spectacular. Having seen your decor I think you made the right choice not to go for the rose gold kit.

Are you just using the BL18s and 19 for music?  I have the BL18 on their own and I think they sound fantastic.  So I was wondering how much of an improvement you feel the BL19 makes. I'm a little bit tempted........

Thanks Duels for the nice words.

Currently the Beolabs are not yet connected to the new Essence MK2 (see separate thread). Few months ago I moved to my girlfriend with my Beolab 5 and honestly she hated them from the beginning (ugly looking aliens). Now they are sold and the deal was to buy the 18 with the 19. From aesthetical point of view the Beolab 18 are fantastic speakers! Sound wise as well, but currently I can not judge on them how they will sound in my livingroom. Will set up the speakers on the weekend.

Keep you posted

I which case yours was BOOM Big Smile

I have not fiddled with any of the BL19's settings - don't know if the standard B&O shop floor settings make it plug compatible with the BL2 ...

The BV8 is from the era when there was only a BL2 Whisper

So there is no customisation in the BV's menu Unsure

Ok, yeah im not sure. I am glad that you went with the BL19 though. It's just so beautiful to look at.

Im sure it will give you much pleasure, especially in music and movies.

In which other cases could it be used 😏

The point of what???

If someone says 'especially in music and movies', there must be some other cases.

I was taught, that the look of the BL19 alone (the design, even if it is silent) also is such a case - which I did not think of at first.

So seriously, what do you mean with your comment?

Sorry Carlito for the lack of weekend pictures.

I am seriously very happy with the BL19

I used to only activate the BL11 for movies, and just use the the BV's centre speaker for talking heads TV and even most shows (GoT, TD, HoC etc being quality exceptions)

As an experiment on Saturday we had some TV with the BL19

Wow ! Even the ABC's station jingles came to life !!

And some shows positively reeked menace at key points when you could and then feel a sense of dread that otherwise would be missing

Triple WOW factor !!!

You're right about the use of bass for ominous points in movies and such. I've noticed that more and more shows and movies use deep bass as a way to build tension, usually people don't even notice some of it if they're into the movie or such, just that they get tense. One of the first movies I ever saw that did that was "Jacob's Ladder." The scene where he has a total freak out and hallucinations during a party, as he's walking thru the crowded room, before the visions start, there's this sub bass, deep, at first very low volume tone that increases slowly until the freak out starts. Really really adds to the stress and creepiness of the scene.

I'm afraid I'm recovering from the BeoVirus. Sad
